Photo Inspiration

Now that we finally have a couch for our basement living room and I've reupholstered it in the perfect green fabric, I can start working on the color scheme for the room.

So far, I think I want to go with jewel toned versions of the pink, blue, yellow, and green that are upstairs.  Most of the room will be a soft grey (Subtle Touch by Behr) so I don't have to paint it back when we leave, but the big long wall of the room will have some sort of color and pattern.  I'm not completely sure what I want to do, but I definitely want a big, fun pattern.

I considered zigzags/a chevron pattern but the wall is so big it would take FOREVER to do.  Still at the back of my mind though...

These aren't even the finished product, just the taped-off pattern but I like the idea of the lines kind of dropping off here and there.  Neat idea! {Image via}
Love the varied angels. {Image via It's Great to Be Home on Flickr}
 Super cute! It's like an organic version of the traditional damask design.

 The combination of the two patterns is perfect.  I think I might use the random strip idea on my side walls.

I think my absolute favorite pattern is the octagon.  Aren't these rooms awesome?! What do you think?

I have no clue where I got these last 3 images from...sorry!
